Guestbook comments from the manager

Another fabulous week at Villa Barros. The Villa has a brand new and extended kitchen this year plus the downstairs bathrooms have recently been upgraded - this enhances the already high standard of accommodation and facilities at the villa. Villa Barros is a 4 bedroom (3 en-suites plus a family bathroom)individually designed two storey private and reasonably priced villa located at the end of a Close of some 7 or so detached villas. The air-conditioned and spacious Villa is not over-looked and is both secure and quiet; the villa has a good sized clean pool. It is well equipped and kept spotlessly clean. The master bedroom occupies the whole of the first floor, has front and rear balconies and has a large well fitted en-suite with large walk-in shower. The Villa is within easy walking distance of good quality restaurants (try Sao Domingos for fine dining)and coffee shops (Docaria Almeixar is a must !). The excellent beach at Gale is a 15 minute walk or 5 minutes by car (we particularly enjoy an evening stroll on the beach followed by a meal and sun-downer at the Gale Beach Restaurant). There is an Apolonia supermarket (bit pricey but good quality) 5 mins by car or a substantial Continente about 10 mins near to Guia. Albufeira is about a 15 min drive and is also served by local buses. The Villa is managed locally by the Principal Office; staff as always very helpful and efficient. We have been to this Villa a number of times and keep coming back as it provides a high standard of private accommodation at an affordable price in an excellent location.

A beautiful villa which was ideal for our family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was well equipped and very clean. The furnishings were to a high standard and very comfortable. The swimming pool was the highlight -we had heating as we were not sure of the weather at this time of year. There was plenty of space for all the family - children enjoyed the playhouse and lots of areas for adults to relax. We did not hire a car but think it would have been a good idea as the supermarket was a good 10-15 minute walk and it would have been easier to get to beaches. However the taxis were efficient and reliable and we enjoyed visits to Zoomarine and Albufeira. A very enjoyable holiday.

Villa Barros

  • 5 of 5

A perfect holiday home. Easy to follow instructions for picking up and dropping off keys. Well equipped, cleaned twice whilst we were there.Very close to restaurants, a short walk to the supermarket and a slightly longer walk to two beaches. A bus stop at the end of the road for those wanting a trip to Albufeira.

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this villa twice now I love it! I would go every year if my husband let me! We had an amazing time everything is so close only downside is there is not a shop very close to pick up essentials like water but supermarket only 15 minute walk and it is amazing! Lovely beach close by and nice new pizza pasta place opened up near the beach! Feel really safe in the villa and it has everything you need!

An excellent villa

A large, clean, well-equipped villa with a great swimming pool. It was the perfect size for our party of seven and well-managed. Highly recommend.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Barros. We are two families, with 3 grown-up children, so 7 adults. However, the villa was spacious enough to accommodate us all. In fact, it was bigger than it looked on the website. We enjoyed the pool, which was regularly cleaned and also the maid service. We had numerous BBQ's and ate outside every meal. Being at the end of a cul-de-sac the villa was secluded and quiet.

We liked Gale, particularly the beach and its numerous bars, and would recommend it for a relaxing beach holiday.
